    Radio button field can only have Other text box field like is already added on your form. 

    If you want to have text bot field next to each radio button option, you will need to add additional text box fields to your form and position them next to radio button options.


    You will also need to add custom CSS code to position fields.


    I have made demo form: https://www.jotformpro.com/form/63625245554963 

    Inside of my demo form I have added two text fields (without labels) and I have added this CSS code:

    #id_19 {

        padding : 0;

        padding-top : 20px;

        padding-right : 200px;


    #id_18 {

        padding : 0;

        margin : 0;


    #id_12 {

        padding-right : 0px;


    .form-radio-item {
